The Camden Decision Lab conducts research on a wide variety of subjects ranging from imperfect perception and memory and their effects on judgments (with economist John Smith), automatic imitation and action (with psychologists Robrecht van Der Wel and Cedric Bouquet), people’s attitudes about environmental protection, the future of climate, and renewable energy with a specific focus on Offshore Wind energy in New Jersey. In the past the lab has investigated cultural differences in thought, the development of spatial reasoning and representation, and game theory.
